My finished Chewbacca suit:

Just thought I'd share a few pics of my recent build. Took me just under a year to complete and even though I rushed it for Comic con 2011, still doing upgrades to the mask.

Fixed a few things on the mask last week.

oh yeah, even though this photo makes me cringe (bad hair day, used cheap hairspray and the hair on the mask kept falling down) pretty cool that I got a photo with these two clowns.

Thanks for the kind words guys. I am 6'4 and I use "Monster boots" (Frankenstein boots) which have a 5" sole. I then put in 3 1/2" internal elevator lifts for additional height. Here's an older photo of the completed boots.

The boots I got for $50 at an online Halloween store and the elevator lifts i just googled. I think i paid $18 for the lifts. You want to make sure you get a size bigger than your actual shoe size for the elevator lifts. Otherwise you won't be able to get them on your feet.
